    I can't understand the meaning of this.

    We would like for you to tell us in a maximum of 200 words in your Native language what skills and abilities you have which could positively contribute to the position?


    What is your motivation to work with us? If you are a gamer, tell us which games you like to play and why. Please feel free to share your gamer tag with us, if you have one.




    ********************************
    So from what I understood, they want me to write an essay of my skills and abilities in my native language.
    And then they just want me to answer the questions below(What is your motivation to work with us? If you are a gamer, tell us which games you like to play and why. Please feel free to share your gamer tag with us, if you have one.) in English, right?

    I understood it as above but my friend understood it in a totally different way ( just answer all the questions using my native language in 200 words)

    Thank you for answering this!

    Re: I can't understand the meaning of this.

    I would take it to mean that you need to write a maximum of 200 words in your native language, covering everything they mentioned (skills and abilities which would contribute, your motivation, and the games you play).

    However, it's not entirely clear. If the rest of the application is in English, it's possible that they only want the skills and abilities part in your native language.

    I would be inclined to ask them to clarify it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I can't understand the meaning of this.

    Without further context or indications to the contrary, I would include all the answers in your native language. There doesn't appear to be any indication that they want you to answer the last questions in English.
